HOARD or niiiucTims Miar/rs. Ilimlnrin lli'fnri1 Hit * ScNNlon Attriutcil In with I'liiiniinl Colerlty. The board of directors transacted Its busi ness yesterday with somewhat more celerity than usual. It was decidedly chilly In the Administration Arch. The only question that provoked any debate occurred In con nection with the report of the special com- mltteo which was appointed at the previous meeting to submit n plan that would effect an Improvement in the present system of transacting the every day business of the association and at the same time not work a hardship on any of the employes. This was read by Thomas Kllpatrlck and In effect It was an nntldoto to the report which had been submitted by the auditing committee at a. previous meeting nnd the operation of which had been criticised by Secretary \Vakcflcld. Yesterday the committee rec ommended that the secretary bo allowed to cash vouchers at his office as heretofore for the present and also that Inasmuch as the employes are paid only once a month small amounts may be advanced In cases where a necessity appears to exist. The previous recommendation that the books should bo balanced every afternoon , which Is still in force , was cot changed. Herman Kountzo called attention to the fact that under the present system vouchers are drawn , made payable to Secretary \Yukofleld nnd receipted for by him. In these cases there is nothing on the voucher to show that the original holder has received his money. This he considers un Irregular way of doing business , although he docs not doubt that the transactions were en tirely legitimate. Secretary NVakefleld ex plained that these cases occurred when a man held a voucher against which the expo sition had a counter claim. In these cases ho made a check In favor of the exposition for the amount of the claim and another In favor of the man with the voucher for what ho had coming after the amount of the claim was deducted. This saved trouble and ono amount balanced the other. Mr. Rosownter suggested that a sub- treasury should be established on the grounds at which smaller vouchers might be paid. No matter how great confidence was reposed in the employes of the exposi tion its business should be transacted like that of any other big corporation. The re ceipts are now more than sufficient to pny the bills and there is no reason why emergency cases should not bo met by having - ing a representative of the treasurer , who should bo under a guarantee bond , on the ground with authority to cash vouchers up to n certain limit. Mr. Kountzo said that ho was not willing to assume the responsibility of putting n man on the grounds , but ho was willing that the association should dp it. No final action was taken and the entire subject was re ferred to the executive committee. John Owens , formerly superintendent under Manager Uabcock , filed a communica tion In which ho protested against the ac tion of the management In connection with his separation from the position. He nar rated the trouble between himself nnd the express concesslonlsts substantially as stated In his interview that was published In The Dee at the time and declared that ho was the victim of unwarranted persecution. Ho asked that he be given nu opportunity to verify his position and was referred to the executive committee. In accordance with the resolution passed at the previous meeting Secretary Wakefleld submitted a report of the number of passes of each description now outstanding. The totals are : Series A , 1,598 ; series U , 227 ; scries C , 3,554 ; series B , photograph passes , C43 ; series P , photograph passes , 3,708. Mr. Kosewater inquired what the Inspec tor has accomplished towards checking up the passes coming through the gates and Mr. Llndsey replied that ho is working on it right along nnd was making dally re ports. K.VUHCISES OF TUB AVOODMIi.V. Some ThoiiHiimlN of .Mviuliprn of Hie Order Tulip Part In tin ; AlTalr. Notwithstanding the rain , the Woodmen of the World turned out In largo numbers and made their presence felt at the expo sition yesterday. Owing to the sloppy con dition of the grounds there was no parade around the Grand Court , nor was there a band contest. The exorcises In the Audi torium were held nnd were attended by fully 2.000 people , who listened to the speeches and the music. Promptly at 2 o'clock n. E. McKelvey , presiding officer , called the meeting to order and Introduced Mayor Moorcs , who extended a welcome to the city , during the course of which ha said : The order of the Woodmen of the World stands for the great principles of cliarlty and fraternity as must nil popular Institu tions which are destined to have permanent existence. In no part of the world arc I 1 these great principles more generally prac- tlced than in the great central west , and this accounts in a measure for the wonder ful popularity of your order among the hos pitable , charitable and friendly people ol this region. The Woodmen of the World is a western institution the product of west ern thought , push nnd financial sagacity. 1 regret that your order docs not have a splendid building upon the grounds of the Tranamlssisslppl Exposition , where flu world might see this truly western product of which wo are nil proud. I trust that the snmo splendid success which has attended the growth of the Woodmen of the World since Its Inception will continue In over greater measure , und that Us future will b < marked by safe , conservative management prompt payment of claims and that its mcm < bershlp may bo united by the gtrongesi bonds of friendship Into one great family. Your order Is one of the great agencies which are striving to bring men to rcullz ( that the brotherhood of man Is not a theory but n reality. I welcome you therefore n : the harbingers of a braider humanity , i deeper charity and a higher brotherhood and I wish for you a most prosperous fu turo. The sovereign camp of the Woodmei of the World Is located hero In Omaha nn < every member of your association shouli feel that he owns the city for that reason I have therefore prepared for you thesi golden keys of the city which I present t < you. If you see anything you want , jus take It , for It Is yours. The keys were accepted by Chairman Me Kclvey , who assured the mayor that the ; would not be allowed to rust during the sta of the Woodmen In the city , after the mal quartet of the order rendered a selection am C. C. Farmer of Mount Carroll , 111. , was In troduccd , it being necessary to place hln upon the program at the last minute , owim to the absence of Sovereign Commande Hoot , who Is 111. Mr. Farmer Is the cbnlr man of the sovereign board of managers o the order. His subject was "Woodcraft , ' and In discussing it he said that during th last few years fraternal Insurances hav been built up nil over the country , Insurtn the lives of hundreds of thousands of me : and women. Speaking of the order of the Woodmen o the World , lie contended that it is ono c 'the best of the fraternal societies. Its poll cles are not contcstable after one year , n member suspended while sick , It build a monument over every dead Woodman an pays the sum of $2,000 to the beneficiary c each number ; It provides for earing for the nick , and looks after the Interests ( if the widows nnd orphan * . In addition to this the funds nro carefully guarded and the olll- cera are bonded to carry out every promise imde by the camps.
